Labradoodles, water hounds, and fiscal stimulus

While the American people are anxiously awaiting the passage of a massive fiscal stimulus bill, media coverage tells us precisely where the priorities of the media are: focusing on labradoodles and water hounds. And when they get bored, taking a cheap shot at Obama's efforts to pass a stimulus bill is a second-best choice. When it comes to priorities, the media all too often focuses on fun and games rather than on truth and enlightenment.

Fine, let the media focus on labradoodles and water hounds. Meanwhile, the Obama economic team is working to coordinate a fiscal stimulus package that can gain congressional support in the near future.

They seem right on track. The Obama team, that is. Not the media, unless your real interest is labradoodles and water hounds.
